Happy New Year . . . OK, I’m a whole 3 months behind with the whole ‘New Year’ thing, for that I apologise. In my defence I have been busy making new products to tempt you all with and taking part in new projects.
First up, I have a whole range of beautiful Tibetan silver charm earrings at the bargain price of £3.50. Click the linky photo thingy to check out what beautiful ear wear you can have.
Secondly, I opened a Sweet Shop . . . well, an online Schweet Shoppe, full of yummy sweets, none of which you can eat as they are wearable candy (and biscuit) jewellery. Indulge your sweet tooth without gaining weight by clicking on the photo.
Thirdly, I have a Spring Promotion running where you can get a free pair of ‘Glow in the dark’ fish bone earrings and there is still some codes left to be used, so get in quick to receive 20% off your total purchase before they are used up. Click the photo to find full details of my Spring Promotion.
Also, buy anything from my new Sale section and you’ll receive a cute pair of chocolate star earrings. Everything in this section is half price and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
And now for the New Projects that have been keeping me so busy . . .
Head on over to grimreavers.com to find out a little about the Roller Derby team I set up in December and their fundraising efforts as they take part in Race for Life.
Also, I learnt to crochet . . . and I am just a little addicted to it
Wow, Summer is really underway . . . although it’s been raining here for what seems like an eternity. Still, that just means we get to stay in and I get some quality time in my workroom.
I’ve had a steady amount of orders to make up, I’ve been experimenting with a new etching technique, I’m trying to woo a potential bulk purchaser . . . I think if I offer them cake I may just swing it, and I’ve been giving in to the geeky side.
First on the agenda . . . my Summer Promotion is still running until 31st August 2012, get scratch cards with your orders, each scratch card is a winner. Full details of this promotion can be found here.
Secondly . . . I am taking part in Laughing Vixen’s Birthday Murder Mystery Giveaway. Find out what prizes are on offer and how to take part over at Laughing Vixen Lounge.
Thirdly . . . there is now a whole host of new items available to purchase in my online store. Find a selection of them below.
Pretty much carrying on the whole zombie, Walking Dead, Daryl Dixon love . . . I made a silver crossbow pendant. I intend to send the first one I made to Norman Reedus and you all should keep reminding me as I still haven’t parcelled it up yet.
What budding serial killer would be without their bloodied cleaver? Show your love for the psycho killer film genre with this silver pendant. Less likely to get you arrested and more likely to be acceptable in polite society.
Love Harry Potter? Waiting for your Hogwarts letter? Worry not, with this beautiful Golden Snitch necklace every day will be like quidditch pratice.
GAME OF THRONES INSPIRED JEWELLERY
If, like me, you got thoroughly engrossed in the Game of Thrones TV series and can not wait for next season to air,
Winter is Coming . . . Not that summer has felt very summery, but nevertheless, House Stark’s moto is bound to come true. Show your support for Ned Stark’s remaining family by wearing their Dire Wolf sigil round your neck.
Fire and Blood . . . show your support for Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons by wearing the House Targaryen three headed dragon sigil round your neck.
There are plenty of other new items in my store too, ranging from Despicable Me minion earrings to Shamballa style bracelets and Ouija board necklaces. Take a look around my online shop and see if anything catches your eye.
I AM BACK
Back in my workroom, back making jewellery, back drinking copious amounts of coffee . . . but not yet back in my skinny jeans.
First up . . . Please welcome the newest and littlest fairy that joined us on 21/02/12. Our new son Jacob (Baby Jake).
Secondly . . . now I can reach my workbench again, seen as my bump is no longer a bump and is now a very vocal small human, items in the Precious Metal Jewellery and Supernatural Inspired Jewellery sections of my online shop are now available to pre-order again.
Lastly, but not leastly . . . I have been making new products that are now available to purchase. Purchase between now and the end of April to qualify for a free pair of Star earrings. Check out my Easter Promotion for details.

MARVIN THE MARTIAN BRACELETS
Each bracelet has one of three Marvin the Martian quotes and includes a handmade polymer clay Marvin the Martian clay charm.
Choose from ‘Halt, and be fricasseed’; ‘Oh! Mutiny makes me so angry!’ and ‘A mission? I’m all of a-tingle!’
Available in many colours with a Shrink plastic charm of your choice (artwork, family photo, etc)
Chibi – A term used by anime/manga fans to refer to small and detailess characters. "Chibi" characters are often used to represent a form of cuteness. It can also be used to indicate small characters.
With the arrival of our new addition mere weeks away I have been looking for things to help me pass the time. Nothing too time consuming or tiring or energetic. As many of you may have seen I have started making cute little Chibi charm keychains/bag charms. I admit, I am addicted to making these and I am planning on adding a few more to my webstore when I can make them.
My first Chibi range is Star Wars inspired Chibi charms. You can purchase Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Yoda or Obi Wan Kenobi. *Luke’s and Obi Wan’s LightSabers glow in the dark* All come on a handmade Kumihimo braided keychain in black and white or you can contact me to have the braid in alternative colours.
Available to purchase via clicking on the photo.
Of course, I can’t go making new items without making something ‘zombie’ related too. So I made cute little Zombie Bride and Groom Chibi charms.
You can buy both keychains for £10. The perfect gift for any zombie obsessed bride and groom.
Available to purchase via clicking on the photo.
I intend to make different ranges of these Chibi charms, and have had a few requests for specific ones. So, I decided to open up a Custom Chibi page in my webstore. I’d already made Shaun of the Dead and Loki for a customer who wanted them as charms to make into her own jewellery, so decided I’d offer that option too. Now you can order your very own Custom Chibi charm to either use to make your own jewellery or you can purchase them ready made into keychains/bag charms.
Please contact me via my email/contact tab if you are unsure. I am willing to make a Chibi charm for you to see photos of before you purchase it.
Available to purchase via clicking on the photo.
If you have any ideas for Chibi charm ranges that you’d like to see, please feel free to leave comments or contact me via Twitter . . . yes, I have already planned on making a Supernatural range and a Walking Dead range
Wow! A New Year is upon us, I’d love to say it’s gone quickly, but it’s dragged a lot for me due to my expanding bump. 2011 has been a fantastic year for Jewellery by Little Fairy Cult and I’m hoping 2012 proves to be just as good, if not better.
I’d like to thank all my customers for purchasing my handmade jewellery and for supporting me in this venture. It’s been a true blessing getting to know you all and I look forward to interacting with new and current customers in 2012.
As most of you are aware, I am expecting a new Little Fairy to add to my brood. Also, as many of you may have seen at Christmas, my baby bump is huge and kind of getting in the way. With this in mind, I have had to stop making my various metal pendants and jewellery as I can’t get close enough to my workbench to saw these items. Highly amusing but none-the-less annoying. As you browse my webstore you will notice that all these items are showing as ‘out of stock’ at present.
In view of this, I have extended my January Sale to last until 17th February 2012 *my expected due date* You can find all items that I have in stock here all at a fantastic 50% off. There is only one available for most of these items, so grab them now.
I do intend to be adding more bead/polymer clay items to my webstore as and when I get the time and energy to make them.
Back by popular demand . . . Free Polymer Clay Rose Earrings!
Spend over £15 in one transaction and receive a free pair of these earrings in any colour you would like.
Spend over £25 in one transaction and receive free shipping and two pairs of these earrings in any colours you would like.
I have shut my Etsy store. I very rarely use it and it’s just another thing to remember to update or add stuff to. All the items that were previously only stocked in my Etsy store are now available in my webstore and are also part of the sale. Find them all here.
I have also added a new category to my webstore – Jewellery Findings in this section you will find hand made pendants that you can purchase and use to make your own beautiful jewellery with. Feel free to contact me if there is any kind of pendant or charm that you would like to see made available.
May I take this opportunity to wish everyone all the best for 2012 and I look forward to introducing my new addition to you all when he chooses to make an appearance.
Just incase none of you were aware already, I’ll let you into a secret . . . I love the Zombie genre. I am a fully fledged zombie obsessed geek and proud. So, bagging ZombieACRES for a guest post is pretty much amazing. Now, I could prattle on about Joshua and his work but he very nicely saved me the time by doing the hard work for me, leaving me free to go read his newest ebook, AiZ: Alice in Zombieland. Enjoy, visit his site, enter the competition, check out his Ebook and share with everyone you know.
Hello everyone. My name is Joshua Cook and I am a freelance writer for hire. Let me first start this little post off by saying thank you to Sandra for giving this space to do this little shameless self promotion. I also want to thank you readers for taking the time to read this shameless plug.
I am actually here to plug two big events right now. The first one is very cool because it is only for residents of the United Kingdom. I was approached by the Blackpool Tower Dungeon attraction to run a contest through my website ZombieACRES.com. I love being able to give my readers something for free, so I jumped at the chance.
The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is a funny and scary trip through history. Learn about tales of torture and comedy from actors in several shows. Just when you think you cannot handle anymore, you get to end your trip with a thrilling ride on the Extremis drop. The winner of this contest will win admission for four (4) to ANY of the Dungeon attraction locations. All you have to do is tweet why you should win to @ZombieACRES. Include hashtag #BlackpoolDungeon. On February 1, 2012, I will select a winner from all of the entrants. For more information on this, and many other contests, please visit ZombieACRES.com Contests.
The second major event is the release of my newest ebook, AiZ: Alice in Zombieland. For months I have been weaving the lives of Gee, Sam, and Alice through tales of extreme loss, heartache, and action. Gee’s little sister, Alice, has been taken from her after being attacked by a zombie. When she awakens from being knocked unconscious by mysterious masked men, Alice is gone and in her place sits Sam Ashe.
Sam Ashe is a zombie obsessed geek who finally had his chance to show he is a hero, and not just a geek. While saving his fiancee, Heather, and her friend, the trio are attacked and he is forced to kill Heather after she is attacked by an undead monster. Now he has vowed to find out why they were attacked and exact revenge on the one company that has caused this trouble.
Roslun Global is the largest pharmaceutical company in the world. In 2010, William Lohman made world history by holding an interview as the first ever talking zombie. He revealed secrets about Roslun Global, a secret zombie testing facility called Zombie A.C.R.E.S., and atrocities performed by the head of Roslun Global, Richard Roslun. Nine years later, Roslun is almost ready to unleash his Second Birth Serum on the world, but he needs one final test subject to ensure it is ready.
Will Gee find and save Alice? Will Sam ever get revenge for Heather’s murder? What lengths will Richard Roslun go to for power and money?
AiZ: Alice in Zombieland is an ebook exclusive story that will test the bonds of love and family through zombies and action. Besides being a great story in itself, AiZ is a precursor to the first Zombie A.C.R.E.S. comic series – being made with Ratatat Graphics and Danny Sosa Art. Pick it up between Christmas Day and the end of the year for only 99 cents at Smashwords.com and Amazon Kindle. Watch for AiZ: Alice in Zombieland in other major catalogs in January of 2012.
Wishing all my Family, Friends and Customers a wonderful festive period and a best wishes for the 2012

So, I’ve finally gotten over the morning sickness and fatigue that comes with the incubation process . . . I’ve been busy in my workroom, small child and housework duties allowing. I’ve made lots of Supernatural inspired pendants for customers, made some Sesame Street inspired earrings, made some Halloween themed foam bead bracelets and finished a custom piece, see the photo gallery for this piece here.
I also made, for the first time ever, a solid silver headband for a close friend’s daughter’s prom. The young lady designed the headband and the necklace she wanted herself.
I was also asked to make a silver baby bangle for someone. He talked me through exactly how he wanted it and at first I couldn’t see how it would work. I’m very pleased to report that it turned out perfectly and the customer was extremely happy with the end result.
And, of course, zombie inspiration made an appearance. I may have mentioned it a few times but I am a big fan of the Zombie genre and I am also easily distracted . . . sat in my work room one day I noticed I had a piece of silver that was perfectly ring sized and with the rapid approach of The Walking Dead Season 2 I decided that it had to be a silver zombie ring. Available to purchase here with any word you would like on it (up to 12 letters), in any ring size.
